Centre Back names Liverpool, Barcelona and Inter Milan frontmen as the best but how could he omit the Fulham man?
Nemanja Vidic has named the three strikers that he believes are currently the best in the world and has chosen one from England, Spain and Italy.
The Serbian defender does not relish playing against Liverpool’s Fernando Torres in the league and would see the task of marking Samuel Eto’o or Zlatan Ibrahimovic as a tough one.
Torres has a good record against United since he moved to Anfield and stood out last term as the Reds came close to pipping their arch rivals to the title.
Eto’o and Ibrahimovic created the story of the summer as they were swapped for each other by Barcelona and Inter and debate has raged about who has the better deal.
While others discuss that issue, Vidic cannot decide between the pair and thinks that they are both world class.
“It’s tough to pick out one name when it comes to Europe’s best strikers but if I could pick three I’d select Samuel Eto’o, Fernando Torres and Zlatan Ibrahimovic,” he told redrants.com.
“These guys are at the top of their game.” (Goal)
Well I guess if anyone can fairly judge the merits and abilities of the best strikers in the world then it’s a top notch centre back. All three named by the Serbian have differing characterstics that must make them a bugger to mark.
As for the Bobby Zamora issue, I can only imagine that Nemanja was told before that he could only name strikers who didn’t have the initials BZ, hence the absence of the striker.
